Emily Muskett joins British Olympic Association’s Athletes’ Commission

The BOA Athletes’ Commission is made up of current and former athletes from Olympic sports. Emily was selected to join the Commission by the current members as part of a drive to represent a wider range of sports.

Emily said: "I am so excited to be a part of the BOA Athletes' Commission, particularly as the first ever weightlifting athlete member. I hope to represent the smaller progression sports as we head towards Paris 2024, and will help ensure the athletes are at the centre of all that we do. I hope to play my part in ensuring every athlete has the best support and experience both in preparation for and during the Olympic Games."

Matthew Curtain, British Weight Lifting’s CEO, commented on Emily’s appointment. “I am delighted that Emily has been selected for the British Olympic Association’s Athletes’ Commission.  Emily is an asset to the sport of weightlifting and I am confident she will be a valuable addition to the Commission.”

Cyrille Tchachet II, IWF Athletes’ Commission member, commented on Emily’s appointment. “Emily was a great athlete and since retirement has continued to work hard for the sport. She ran with me for the IWF Athlete’s Commission, she works to develop the sport with her role at British Weight Lifting and she is actively involved with organising competitions outside of work. Her appointment to the BOA Athletes’ Commission is well deserved. Congratulations.”
